Product Description

The Access Bible has long been the go-to study Bible for Christians looking for insight into and background for the Bible. Designed for the individual reader, it's accessible to new readers but also offers enough depth for those who are already familiar with the texts but want to delve deeper into the culture and context of their authors and origins. A unique feature of the Access Bible is the running commentary which is interspersed with the Bible text. Difficult concepts are clearly explained in terms which everyday readers can easily understand. There's no need to have a dictionary by your side when you're using the Access Bible, Updated Edition. When a technical explanation is required, all of the terms are defined right on the page, as well as in a glossary at the back. History, social contexts, religious practices, the beliefs of ancient peoples-all are explained when the Bible text requires it. In addition, this Bible was designed to contain all the background information needed by believers from a wide spectrum of churches. The Access Bible sets a new standard for ease of understanding.
This Updated Edition includes all same outstanding study helps (annotations, sidebars, maps, essays, and a glossary) as the original, but now also includes section introductions and additional essays.

    This study bible has the most unique layout I've seen yet. I thought the layout of notes in between the text would be distracting, but it does work well. You can lose your place at times jumping up and down from study notes to biblical text and this solves that. Basically if you read straight through you get a portion of scripture, then explanation, then scripture, then explanation. It is easy to figure out what's text and what are notes too which is a worry I did have. The content is pretty good and balanced. It's not as in-depth as other study bibles in the NRSV (for in-depth you'd want an Oxford Annotated, HarperCollins or New Interpreter's), however it does have a good amount of info, just enough to get some good insights. The helps in the back and the maps are great.

    When it comes to the quality of the book itself, this paperback edition is a lot heavier than you'd expect. That to me says durability. It is a VERY durable Bible for a softcover. One problem is that the names of ISAIAH and REVELATION were accidentally printed by the inner spine/binding rather than the outside corners. This doesn't affect the reading of the Bible, but for a perfectionist (like me at times) it can be an annoyance. Other than that the Bible is a great edition with good content that I would recommend!
